La Maison

I have spent a large part of the last 6 months slowly decorating my home.

I love colour, pattern, texture... I must be surrounded by it, but at the same time I go through favourite colours like a pair of shoes. So deciding how I'd decorate my home became a long and hard decision to make. I read endless blogs, bought all the home magazines that were available, googled any inspirational snippet I'd seen on tv... so you can understand how difficult it was for me to decide on one particular look.

I am inspired by Paris. I love the way the French can make something opulent, elegant and at the same time sleek and neat. I had found the Catherine Martin wallpaper for Porters Paints and fell in love. I was going to go for a lighter colour theme but Mum convinced me to go for the black and cream and I'm so glad she did.

Anyway, here are some pics of my tiny home! I hope you like it.


  1. I am showing my husband these photos because it is so perfect, the way your home is decorated. Your taste is very similar to my own..the only different being, perhaps, my tendency towards asian things in lieu of 'french'...though my pension for black and white flooring is undeniable! Brilliant!

  2. Wow, your home revamp looks fabulous! What a great space - love the stripes!
